Kickoff of the OntoSoft Geoscience Paper of the Future Pilot

The Geoscience Paper of the Future pilot was held in the Spring of 2015, with thirteen members of the Early Career Advisory Committee of the EarthCube OntoSoft project signed up to participate.

Yolanda Gil, PI of the OntoSoft project and Research Professor in Computer Science at the University of Southern California kicked off the OntoSoft GPF pilot activity and welcomed in-site participants as well as remote participants and observers. On the screen is Michael Bizimis, Assistant Professor in the Department of Earth and Ocean Sciences, University of South Carolina. Seated third from the right is Sarah Rubin, an MD at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles and recipient of a fellowship to apply data science to pediatric critical care.

WHOI Training Session Summer 2015

GPF training session instructors Robinson W. Fulweiler (Boston University) and Yolanda Gil (University of Southern California) photographed with the most recent model of the Alvin deep sea submersible as they toured the facilities at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI). First launched in 1964, Alvin has received many upgrades that enable it now to take now to take a pilot and two scientists as deep as 6,000 meters for up to 10 hours. Over the last 50 years, Alvin has been a key compoennet of some of the most iconic deep sea discoveries, including observing extreme life, exploring the first known hydrothermal vents, and surveying the sites of the 2010 Deepwater Horizon oil spill and of the RMS Titanic.
